The Tooth Fairy Will Not Visit Anymore!

I’m not trying to be rude. Honestly, the tooth fairy is welcome in my house but it was made clear last Thursday that she will not be visiting our house anymore. The exchange of words between my daughter and I brought tears to my eyes. My daughter leaped from my bear hug to grab a pencil. She was eager to write a letter to the tooth fairy for the last time. What did I do? I grabbed my iPhone to take a picture so I could document the moment. Then, I fell into my pillow to shed tears.

As I laid there in my pillow, I thought back to this moment 11 years ago when my daughter’s first tooth finally popped through her gums. She was a late teething baby and I remember the moment clearly when that little white tooth finally popped through the skin. L and I danced around for what seemed forever. Happy tears were falling from my face. Fast forward 11 years and I am crying again because all those little baby teeth that finally came through the gums are long gone. She will soon have all her permanent teeth.

Isn’t it crazy how milestones come full circle? The tooth fairy was the last bit of childhood that I was clinging to before both of my beautiful girls leap full force into their teenage years. Long gone are the days when I would be awaken to the sounds of the girls squealing in delight about how much the tooth fairy had left them under their pillow. By the way, the tooth fairy has really inflated her surprised. 50 cents has now turned into $5.00. Parents with toddlers may want to make a mental note.

L will always be my baby girl. It is a fact of life that she is growing up. It is cliche, but children really do grow up too fast. I’m off to go hug my girls tight. They will always be mommy’s girls!

HP Social Media Snapshots Review

HP has come out with an awesome invention! As a parent, I take a lot of pictures with my cell phone. I’m not the best about printing the pictures. Yes, I admit the pictures will just stay on my phone or live on the hard drive of my computer. This doesn’t have to be a problem anymore.

DIY Flower Vase Using Starbucks Frappuccino Glass

The creativity gene skipped me and went straight to my oldest daughter, M. She amazes me with the beautiful projects she creates for me. My husband and the girls came on campus to have lunch with me and I was greeted by this precious flower vase.

DIY Flower Vase Starbucks Glass

 

The girls love Starbucks Frappuccino’s! I watch the coupons and try to find a good deal on them. In the last two weeks, I have been able to pair a coupon with the deal at Harris Teeter. The perfect summer treat for them. M decided she wanted to do something with the glasses. She soaked the glasses to get all of the sticky label mess off and surprised me with the flower vase. It goes perfect on my desk at work. Throughout the day today, I would look over at the vase and a big smile would stretch across my face.

It is so simple to create this project yourself. The marbles were on the 75% clearance section, the flower came from the Dollar Tree and she used ribbon to cover the top of the glass.

Didn’t she do a great job? It is the refreshing look I needed on my desk!

Make Mother and Daughter Time a Priority

Parents need to ensure we are spending time with our children. This technology-driven world can overstep quality family time. If parents ensure to write in family time in the calendar, it can happen on a regular schedule. Money doesn’t even have to be a factor. You can rent a DVD from RedBox or pull up a movie on NetFlix. Sit on the couch and watch the movie together. Grab a pizza and have discussion time. It can be simple as that but will go a long ways in your relationship with your children.

This past weekend, my oldest daughter and I decided to do a home DIY pedicure. It was awesome. As we were soaking our feet in warm water with epsom salt, we were able to have great conversations. Afterwards, M painted my toenails. We spent minimal money, but I felt like a million bucks. My feet felt great but most of all, I was able to have one-on-one time with M.

Another quality time is M creating different hairstyles with my hair. She is really into doing different braids with my hair and L’s hair. It is actually relaxing to just sit and chill, and see what braid she completes. I love this braid she did last night on my hair.

As you can see, it doesn’t take extensive planning and a lot of money to spend time with your children. The girls knowing I took time out of our busy schedules to spend time with them means all the world to me. I want them to look back on their childhood and remember these special mother and daughter memories.
